Hi everyone. A little different format for today, as everything is changing so quickly. And it’s hard to type and watch the impeachment debate at the same time. (https://www.cbsnews.com/news/trump-impeachment-house-consider-articles-watch-live-stream-today-2021-01-13/)
Wednesday – 01/13/2021 – ONLINE – “White Backlash Webinar with Robin DG Kelley” – (5:00 pm PST)Facebook page link https://www.facebook.com/events/466703124490590/. Event by Showing Up for Racial Justice (SURJ) Register: http://bit.ly/whitebacklash The far-right mob storming the US Capitol building on January 6th caused outrage across the world, but this kind of event is part of a long history of white organized backlash to Black-led struggle and victories. As people committed to organizing white communities for racial justice, we must understand this situation in its historical context in order to be able to strategically build power to fight back.

Anti-Sedition Postcard Campaign – Flip the West
Link here. Miss postcarding? Here’s another campaign.”Join Flip the West’s rapid-response postcard campaign as we write to registered Democrats living in the California districts of Sedition Caucus members Kevin McCarthy, Mike Garcia, Doug LaMalfa, Jay Obernolte, Devin Nunes, Ken Calvert, and Darrell Issa.
We’re letting voters know their Congressman voted to throw out millions of legally cast votes and overturn another state’s election, and that we intend to vote them out of office in 2022. We email you a script targeting one of the Congressmen, plus names and addresses (minimum quantity 25). You supply your own postcards and stamps. (Click here: http://bit.ly/2K7pkFm, for info on buying postcards and stamps)”
Remove the whole eco-system of sedition.
Action #1: Expel GOP legislator objectors for putting one man over democracy
Action #1: Make a call. It’s an effective action that takes one minute.
Minimal Script: I’m calling from [zip code] and I want *[Rep./Sen. [___] to impeach Trump/ to thank Rep./Sen. [___] for pushing for Trump’s impeachment] & to expel the 8 senators and 139 representatives who broke their oath to defend the Constitution and who voted against certification, helping to amplify Trump’s campaign of lies to overturn a presidential election. In addition, if any are found to have provided aid to insurrectionists, such as providing information, or reconnaissance tours, they must resign and be arrested.
*Feinstein has committed to an impeachment action and Brownley and Carbajal are cosponsors of “H.Res.24 – Impeaching Donald John Trump, President of the United States, for high crimes and misdemeanors.” Cannot find a Harris statement. Thank Feinstein and Brownley when you call them for standing up.
Action #2: Send a text
Text EXPEL to 30403 to tell your member of Congress what needs to happen! There will be a one sentence script for your message: *[Impeach Trump/ Thank you for your support in impeaching Trump]& please expel members who voted against certification.
For those who are interested, we did a brief rundown in the action of the instances when Democrats objected to electoral slates, and the material differences of their efforts to those of the GOP on Jan. 6th.
Action #2: Disbar the lawyer/legislators who helped set our country on fire!
Help us get all the lawyer/legislators who broke their own ethical rules along with their sworn oaths to protect the Constitution disbarred. This would include the most dangerous instigators, including Sens. Ted Cruz and Josh Hawley and Rep. Mo Brooks.
We are asking people to send an email letter (we provide a model letter to use if you wish) to the American Bar Association (ABA) to ask them to step up and pressure state licensing boards to better monitor the behavior of their license holders, and either a letter or email regarding each offending lawyer/legislator to their applicable state board.
The action is here. https://indivisibleventura.org/2021/01/11/disbar-the-lawyer-legislators-who-helped-set-our-country-on-fire/
Click here (https://indivisibleventura.org/lawyer-legislator-disbarment-chart/) and see lawyer/legislators were involved in seditious behavior. They are listed alphabetically by STATE. You have a choice of federal representatives, senators and state attorneys generals. who went on the record with their violation, either by signing an amicus brief, filing a lawsuit or obstructing others in their constitutional duties. Pick one, or collect the whole set!
It’s an easy process. Once you’ve picked your lawyer/legislator(s), and have the information for which shenanigans he/she was involved with, we have model letters you can copy, cut and paste, and have provided links on how to send them to the right state boards. Each state has different submittal requirements, one of the issues we discuss in the ABA’s letter.
We also have illustrations to guide you as well. (example below)
Wow! Rep. Mo Brooks has been BUSY!!! He has TWO codes – (TL) and (HT)!
- TL – Texas Lawsuit/Congress: Texas v. Pennsylvania – 126 reps.
- AG – Texas Lawsuit/State A.G’s: 17 state attorneys generals
- GO – Rep. Louis Gohmert: Gohmert v. Pence.
- JH – Senator Josh Hawley – Objection to PA electoral votes
- HT – House Team: 139 House representatives, led by Rep. Mo Broooks, voted to sustain objections to electoral results.
- ST – Senate Team: 8 senators, led by Sen. Ted Cruz, voted to sustain objections to electoral results.
Action #3: Support the COUP Act – Congressional Oversight of Unjust Policing Act
Rep. Jamaal Bowman has just introducied the Congressional Oversight of Unjust Policing Act (COUP). This bill will create a 9/11 style “national commission to investigate the terrorist attack on the Capitol on Jan. 6“, while also addressing what Bowman called “the systemic failures in the United States Capitol security apparatus.” The COUP Act would also investigate an possible ties between white supremacists and Capitol Police.
Biased policing is a security threat because it leads us to mark innocent people as threats and terrorists as innocent. This is what happened at the Capitol on Wednesday, and it resulted in a police-aided coup.
Simply firing the heads of the Capitol police won’t be enough. We need a detailed investigation and course of action to redeem trust and restore security, and a commission to investigate the attack and ties between white supremacists and Capitol Police.

- #2: Miminal script: I’m calling from [zip code] and I want Rep./Sen. [___] to support and Rep. Jamaal Bowman’s Congressional Oversight of Unjust Policing Act (COUP).
